Global streaming outlet, Netflix have announced an improvement in its subscriber growth following its newest viral addition ‘Squid Game’.

According to a letter released by the company, the streaming platform recorded the addition of 4.4 million new customers globally between July and September, bringing the total number of users to 213.6 million.

“Netflix is a global, direct-to-consumer service which enables creators to reach broader audiences- and gives our members an even greater choice of stories to enjoy. There is no better example of this than ‘Squid Game,” an excerpt from the letter to investors reads.

The new numbers is said to surpass both the streaming platform and analyst’ forecasts. However, the streamer predicts 222 million subscribers by the next quarter.

Netflix’s sky-high numbers comes amid the streamer’s latest media tempest involving Dave Chappelle’s new comedy special ‘The Closer’. Some LGBTQ campaigners, artistes and Netflix employees have slammed the top comedian over the past weeks for transphobic comments made on the show.
